Daughter of former US President Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton came to the defence of the extended White House staff after current President Donald Trump termed the mansion 'a real dump'.

Trump's views on the White House came to light in a report published on a golfing website where he was quoted as saying "That White House is a real dump." According to the report, Trump told his golf buddies that he prefers staying at his own properties rather than at the White House as it is a 'real dump', a statement that was denied by White House spokesperson.

In response, Chelsea, who has lived at the White House for 8 years, tweeted: Thank you to all the White House ushers, butlers, maids, chefs, florists, gardeners, plumbers, engineers & curators for all you do every day.

As per tradition, the Trumps also hired a private decorator to transform the living quarters when they moved into the White House and first lady Melania also brought in Timothy Harleth, a senior manager at the Trump International Hotel in Washington to oversee the staff running the White House after Donald Trump took office.

While Trump has been known to proudly offer tours of the White House to VIP visitors and enjoy perks of the specialised chefs, based on CNN counts, he spent 21 of his first 26 weekends since joining office at his own properties.
